Post your film P&S pics

Hey Pentaxians,

Let's get a thread going for those of us who shoot film Point and Shoot cameras (Pentax or not). Let's say that quasi-P&S cameras like zone focus cameras (XA2) and pocketable rangefinders (XA) are fair game as well.

I've been digging my Contax T2 recently. Here's a shot from my first roll with it. Admittedly a stupid photo, but I've been hooked ever since:

Here are some from my 'Gift' NIKON L35AF ( sorry PENTAX ! )
British Buses in our High Street, Brentwood, 2001 outdated Fujicolor Press 800 rated 200 and home-processed


Brentwood High Street on way back from Hospital appointment in Romford -- not so busy at that time of day


A ' Little Old Britsish Lady' struggling with her shopping trolley at a Bus Stop, taken from the top deck of Bus on way back from Hospital


The Harvester Pub from top deck of the Bus on way back from Hospital -- all through glass window of course


This is the camera I used for these photos -- given to me from an old Camera Club friend.

I was given a MINOX 35 GT and have managed to get another battery as the supplied one was dead and the 'illegal' MERCURY type . It has a 35mm f2.8 Color-Minotar lens, very sharp, 'Programmed' exposure' but when a flash is put into hot shoe 1/125th second shutter speed is set .
Car Boot Sale, Ilford Delta 100 outdated rated 80 ASA, processed in Crawley Formula FX37 1+3


test at full aperture f2.8, outdated Ilford Delta 100 rated 80 ASA, processed in Crawley Formula FX37 1+3


Little Old British Ladies with shopping trolleys, f2.8 test, outdated 'Boots' ( Fuji) 400 rated 200 ASA, home-processed C41.


Full aperture, f2.8, 2005 outdated Kodak Ultra 400 rated 200 ASA, home-processed in C41


This is the Camera I used with the dead battery.

I love the photo of the busses. I hadn't heard of the Nikon, but looks like a gem. I've seen the Minox for sale on Ebay before and have read about them on http://subclub.org, which has a lot of cool info on some pretty rare subminiature cameras.

thanks for viewing -- I thought members in USA would not have seen BUSES we have here in Brentwood, England -- well, I had a look at that 'link' and they do not allow 24x36mm format users so my MINOX 35GT is excluded ! Will post some more typical 'British Scenes' if you like !!

Nice pics! A couple in my camera club bought one of those when they first came out and used to enter pics from it in our competitions. I always liked the way it rendered colors.
